As we boldly go into a new year at the University of Washington, your humble editors are making a few changes.
First, we’ll be saying goodbye to editor Dave Randall, who has been an important part of the AU family. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and also encourage him to constantly check his e-mail, as those of us left behind plan on pestering him with every small question that might come to our minds. Thanks for your invaluable expertise, Dave!
Second, that means we have an open editor position! We will happily accept applications from any and all students. Ideal candidates are lovers of literature and speculative fiction with a passion for producing quality work. Special consideration will be given to those with experience working with WordPress and Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. Resumes and writing samples are not required but will be accepted with glee and mirth. If interested, e-mail a cover letter to email@example.com with “Editor Position” in the subject line. The position is unpaid (sorry—we’re a low-budget operation here) but great experience in writing, editing, and design. We’d love to have you!
And finally, we recognize that many of our former writers and readers are no longer on campus. We congratulate you on moving beyond the college campus and into the so-called “real world,” but we’d also like to keep you involved—therefore, AU will now be producing PDF copies of our issues, available for sale on our website (you’ll find the link in the header above) for the low, low price of $3. Past issues will be available soon as well at a discounted rate of $2.
We look forward to another year filled with robots, magic, and non-Euclidean geometry with you. Watch your e-mail for fall quarter’s issue theme (Issue X! That’s a big deal!) and any future announcements we might make.
Never give up, never surrender.
Hello creative types!
As the autumn quarter finally comes to a close and we all venture of for the holidays it’s time to announce the theme for our next issue!
Of course there are still plenty of AU: Issue VII – Homeland available to buy all around the U District. You can pick them up from the English Advising office, Bulldog News, The University Bookstore and hopefully soon the Bookstores HUB location as well. AU makes a great Christmas gift so why not pick up one (or three) now!
So anyway, without much further ado it is time to announce the theme for AU: Issue VIII, CHRONOS. What does Chronos mean? Well essentially it very broadly means Time, and to us more specifically we’re looking for creations around the aspects of Freedom from Time and Out of Time. But please feel free to play around with the theme as you wish, but please remember that while we will read your Dr Who fanfic with jubilation, we won’t publish it!
The deadline is Sunday February 3rd at 11:59pm and we’ll be sending out plenty more reminders over the coming weeks.
PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ARTISTS WE NEED YOU! If you’re a budding artist then please send us your Chronos themed submissions, the more the merrier and if you know anyone who’s affiliated with the UW and likes to draw then please forward this email on to them. We will accept color submissions, as we’re looking to expand into printing more color pages, but we also need plenty of submissions that will look good in black and white.
It’s that time of the quarter people, we’re launching out newest issue of the journal.
Come join us to hear readings from this issue’s contributors, enjoy snacks of the highest quality* and partake in our HOMELAND quiz, and win SHINY prizes!!!
Previously we’ve done this at the Bookstore but due to a scheduling conflict we’re having it on campus in SMITH 115!
Come and get your new copy of the journal, only $3 each, we’ll also have a few past edition available if you’d like backcopies and buttons too! Everyone likes buttons!
*ok, medium quality
